"Trauma Recovery Workbook for Teens is exactly what the world needs right now: a compassionate, frank, succint, and beautifully empowering workbook for our traumatized teens. Chock full of critical information, helpful assessments, and organized checklists, alongside healing strategies and resiliency practices: this is the book I wish I'd had as a brand new therapist, and I'm incredibly grateful that it's available now. I'll be recommending this in every space I can."
